Cavaliers forward Kevin Love, who missed the team's morning shootaround with flu-like symptoms, will play against Atlanta.

Love is averaging 17.8 points and 10.5 rebounds in 23 games. He grabbed a season-high 18 rebounds and scored 22 points in Monday's win over Charlotte. Love has 13 double doubles this season.

Atlanta guard Jeff Teague, who leads the team in scoring and assists, is out with a strained left hamstring. He was injured in Monday's win over Chicago. Teague is averaging 16.8 points and 7.0 assists.

Cleveland guard Mike Miller, who sustained a concussion on Dec. 4, will miss his seventh straight game. Coach David Blatt said Miller still has some stiffness in his neck area and will be held out one more game as a precaution. Miller participated in practice Tuesday.
